Core Service

The core service of Plenny is a capacity market for payment channels branded as Lightning Ocean (LOC). The capacity market is a permission-less, non-custodial, Peer-to-Peer service targeting Lightning Nodes. The service-level provided by Plenny focuses on technically secure and economically viable operations across both the Bitcoin Lightning Network and on the Ethereum blockchain. By leveraging the capacity market, Lightning Nodes gain additional channel capacity on the LN and access to additional liquidity through the Ethereum ecosystem. Expanding the reach of Lightning Nodes leads to improved connectivity and better transaction routing overall. As a result, Lightning Nodes optimize economics for potential fee income in Sat while earning additional income in Plenny (PL2).
